Home office design and function - now that so many of us work from home!

With a 2021 work-from-home update, I'm doing a deep dive into office design and function. 

This week on the Your Home Story Podcast, we cover the utilitarian essentials (and how to make them more attractive), some design features you can add that are also practical, and facts of office space life like the table-vs-desk debate for work surfaces.
From this office makeover I did last spring


We talked about so many ideas and solutions (contains affiliate links):
  1. My upstairs office
  2. My dining room desk and picture light
  3. My townhouse home tour and office/sewing room
  4. Ashley’s current sunroom/office
  5. The HP printer that charges you based on prints/usage if you use HP Instant Ink
  6. Ashley’s office board on Pinterest
  7. My office board on Pinterest
  8. The Nesting With Grace “Magic Light Trick” you can use to add sconces above a desk or to add interest and light
  9. Inspiration image of a hanging light over a workspace
  10. My affordable and cute office chair round-up
  11. Butcher paper roll holder and clip set for to-do list
  12. Inspiration image of an oversized design board
  13. Some cute acrylic wall-mounted calendars: 1, 2, 3
  14. The clear plastic pegboard system I used in my sewing room
  15. The Grid-It product you can use to corral and hide cords mounted to a desk

Plus shared four office inspirations we love:
  1. Ashley from the Gold Hive - Hand Painted mural, pendant light, table (without drawers)
  2. Lindsey from Hello Hydrangea - A weaver so her office displays lots of her yarns, looms, etc.
  3. Yellow Brick Home - Small office setup with table and storage and then seating area on the other side.
  4. Jones Design Co - Office/studio with desk and table setup
